Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark purple in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of sweet strawberries, raspberries, cherry pie, wood, licorice, spices, dried fruits, coffee, fresh popcorn, cloves, herbs, chocolates, mocha and black pepper.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blueberries, dried raspberries, wood, licorice, earth, spices, light vanilla and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very enjoyable Zinfandel from Napa Valley. Well balanced and fruit forward with mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel. Not as spicy as I excepted.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (2 hours).

Still young and needs another 5 to 10 years in the bottle to mature properly.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$49.
